Hi Folks.
Nearly time to refit the engine back into my 67 hornet (hydro suspension), engine and subframe was removed as one item i was just wondering if anyone has any pros or cons of refitting back into the body this way ?

Many thanks
John

pros to re-fit subframe/ engine/ 'box as one unit would be:

no need for crane + no scrabbling about on the floor fiddling with engine mount bolts

cons: front end of car needs to be lifted higher than you think + aligning subframe mount points can be problemmatical

six of one and half a dozen of the other really Smile
